Title : Influence of natural liver fluke on hepatic markers in sera of zebus from western Africa
Authors : G.J. SAWADOGO, K. DA, G.A. OUEDRAOGO, A.J. ILBOUDO, P. BENARD et J.P. BRAUN
Summary : Hepatic markers were checked in sera from zebus naturally infected by Fasciola gigantica in Senegal or Burkina Faso. As compared with parasite-free animals, infected ones showed diminished albumins, Beta-globuline and total proteins. The decrease of albuminaemia is indicative of hepatic failure. However, there were no significant variations of enzyme activities, even for GGT which is considered as a good marker of hepatic lesions during fasciolasis.
Keywords : clinical biochemistry - proteins - enzymes - liver fluke - zebu.
